Marksman Elite XP to Windows 7 Upgrade Kit Now Available
Date Posted: 7/29/2013
A new upgrade kit is available to upgrade Marksman Elite machines running on the Windows XP platform to the Windows 7 platform. Some customers may find it beneficial to upgrade their existing Marksman Elite XP-based controllers in order to standardize the operating platform to match later purchase Marksman Elites that have Windows 7 installed.
FoxJet has not seen any performance improvements to the Print Control software, however, customers may reap other benefits with Windows 7 especially in facilities that network and maintain machines via the IT staff. At this time, FoxJet does not plan to create software that will only function on the Windows 7 platform, rather Windows XP and 7 will continue to be simultaneously supported.
The upgrade kit includes the Windows 7 license sticker as well as a USB stick that facilitates the upgrade with the existing Marksman Elite hardware.
